2020 Letterboxd Stats!

I signed up for Letterboxd way back in 2015. Yes, really! Although I didn’t actually start using it properly until the end of 2019 and therefore 2020 was the first full year that I logged every single film that I watched. Albeit not as many Cinema films as I would have liked, which leads me on to saying during the lockdown/furlough stage I spent a lot of time logging in the diary all of the films I had seen at the Cinema dating back to 2003 (yes, I still have my Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ticket). This obviously took a few weeks as I also logged the films I have review on here as well. So as you imagine a lot of time was taken to do this. It gives some amazing all-time stats though.

Here we can take a look at my 2020 stats and I am sure no one will be surprised with my most watched films either!

15 Years of Batman Begins!

That’s right the truly incredible start to Christopher Nolan’s darker Batman trilogy was released 15 years ago today, I don’t know about anyone else but that makes me feel incredibly old!?!? I adore this trilogy and Batman Begins is an incredible film. Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne is very different to what we had previous seen and then you add in Michael Caine as Alfred! Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow is haunting as well!
